Did I tell about my trip to NH and the real reason I miss SoCal soooo much!

Okay so by now you all know I sell Avon, I drank the Kool-aid and am fairly passionate about it. Well lets face it, it's not Photography or shopping but a close 3rd. So I win this contest but not really completely by default basically I'm like 5th or 6th runner up and the only other person available last Saturday to drop everything and go on a 12hr round trip to meet the Avon Lady herself. Lisa Wilber she is amazing, inspiring and rich because of her drive and creativity in selling herself and making sure when you thought Avon you thought of her. So of course I had to think about what am I going to wear because that is always the 1st question on my mind.

Here is it, I was on the phone with my cousin Rita who was also texting me pictures of her dress she bought for my sons graduation ceremony in June which means I totally need a new dress because well as the mom I can't let her out shine me right.

My trip to NH early Saturday morning we drove and did not stop at Yankee Candle Company but we did stop here.
All I could think about was Die Hard, Die Hard II and Die Hard w/a Vengeance and of Course Live Free or Die Hard!! 

Donna, Stacy and me, Heather our DM is taking the photo. Donna and myself obviously embrace color, Stacy chooses to only wear black w/a few well placed color accessories. Well when you are in your 20's you can get away with that. 
We arrived!
Lisa Wilber's car it was on the cover of Cruiser Monthly. I was in awe at the dedication to her business.
Avon mecca! Lisa Wilber and her mom's store tons of Avon tons of it. I really mean tons. Those things in the front are lipsticks.  I truly wanted to open and test every single one.
 It was a great time and very interesting experience I learned a lot and the big secret was there is no secret and no special magic. Just get your name out there as much as possible. Lisa was very down to earth and normal regular. She gave you the impression that if she can do it anyone can. Simple right?

Of course when I got home waiting for me in the mail was this.
Nordstroms Half Yearly sale for Women and Children. I wanted to cry let me just admit it. I truly miss my Nordstoms Sophia my personal shopper lunch at the cafe w/my mom, Brian and Stacy my shoe guys parking in front downstairs and walking thru the sunglasses, perfumes right to Woman's shoes and picking up a shoe and thinking $150.00 not bad. Yes to all my friends you know I miss you but you also know me and know I miss this even more. Rich you better be worth it, all I'm saying.
Off to bed now and heading to Philadelphia in the morning for 3days so looking forward to a short vacay. I am planning to bring 2 shorts a dress and 3tops and 2 pairs of shoes. Okay seriously yes wardrobe is a priority for me because fashion is my passion, short of photography!
